Desc. : No wonder revisit the theme of the sea for a table Minoan, when we know that the Cretans were known since antiquity as rough sailors. The first thalassocracy would be that of King Minos, with a powerful fleet, he would, according to Thucydides, established his dominance over the Cyclades and the Aegean served pirates. Other sources, present the Cretan sailors as pirates of the Aegean Sea. Returning to our table and its interpretation. The situation in which there are three characters seems easy: A mermaid welcomed with open arms a Minoan come to join in its waters. When the presence of the seahorse, it is assigned for more than 4,000 years in its representation on Minoan seals holy! We can only wonder about the significance of three hearts in bracelets worn around a wrist of our courtier. In fact, for reasons unexplained to this day, often appear on Minoan characters naked, detached or hip, thigh or the right or left, three strips of material indefinable. These have been deliberately turned into three bracelets. When the eggs hatch seems the seabed, this can be a good omen for the artist, since it is the monogram Philhelm.
